National athletics star Clement Agyemang says he will retire from the sport next year after almost 15 years.
The former national 100 and 200 meters champion says he did not reach the heights that he wanted but he did the best that he could for Ghana and will always remember his participation at the Commonwealth Games in Melbourne.
Agyeman burst unto the scene from his secondary school days and went on to become one of the most consistent athletes in the country.
The Customs officer says favoritism and bias in team selection are what curtailed his rise in the sport but is hopeful the next generation will be given a fair chance to show off their talents to the world.
"How i was dropped for the Athens Olympics was unfair.I won the final trial in Germany before the Olympics ahead of Gad Boakye and Samuel Adade but Adade went to the Olmpics ahead of me" Clement said to Citi Fm.
Clement however said he has high hopes for the next generation of Ghana athletes who he claims are amonbg the most talented the country has had.
